What type of potatoes is best for baking?

Baking potatoes requires a unique and varied selection, depending on the dish. You should use high-starch varieties like Russet or Idaho potatoes for fluffy, baking potatoes.

As they contain more starch, they will produce an even fluffier result than lower-starch potatoes.

Use a lower-starch alternative like Yukon Gold or Yellow Finns if you want crispy skin.

The brown, thick skin of these sauteed potatoes will ensure a crispiness normally found with higher-starch varieties but with the added benefit of being creamier in texture when cooked.

So, consider these types carefully when looking for the perfect potato to serve your next dish!

Yield: 4
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 3 large diced baking potatoes

  • 1 Tbsp water

  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 diced medium red bell pepper

  • ½ diced medium red onion

  • ½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp dried parsley
½ tsp dried rosemary
½ tsp smoked paprika

  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

  • ¼ cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Put the potato and water into a microwave-safe dish and cover. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Don't overcook them and make them mushy.
  2. Heat the oil in a cast iron skillet on medium heat. Add the red pepper and onion and sprinkle on the garlic powder, parsley, smoked paprika, and rosemary. Season with salt and pepper and stir.
  3. Cook, and stir frequently until the pepper and onion are soft. This will take about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Drain the moisture from the potatoes and pat them dry. Put them in the skillet and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are golden brown and a little crisp. This will take about 6-7 minutes. Add more salt and pepper if needed.
  5. Take off the heat and add Parmesan cheese on top of them while they are warm. Cover and let the cheese melt. Serve.
